(Clearwisdom.net) The Penghu Technical College is the only state college on Penghu Island. For its eighth anniversary, the college organized a parade involving the local community. A total of 48 groups participated in the parade and Falun Gong was one of them.

The parade around the city was scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m., to be followed by performances in the night. Falun Gong practitioners quietly and peacefully walked in rhythm with the sounds of "Pu Du" and "Ji Shi". Spectators lined the streets, and we distributed many flyers introducing Falun Gong to them. As we walked down the streets, almost everyone accepted the flyers. We ran out of flyers even before we finished the parade.

The parade also provided a chance for practitioners to improve. An older practitioner at our site had practiced over one year, but he didn't participate in many activities because he needs to use the restroom frequently. Every day, he would use the restroom after one hour of practice. This time, we encouraged him to join the parade and we walked continuously for three hours without him needing to stop. Since then, he no longer needs to use the restroom so frequently any more. Another practitioner met a friend during the parade, and it was a good opportunity to introduce this friend to Falun Gong.

The practitioners cooperated as one integrated body during this activity. I was deeply moved by the sacred, passionate energy field during the parade.
